Editing of Scouting article[edit]

Lars: I know you are on the list of members of the Scouting WikiProject, so we welcome your interest in Scouting and helping with the project. But I would like to discuss your recent editing of the Scouting article. I feel it was way too agressive. Some edits were legit (like BSA being in "see also" and the text, so you removed the "see also" listing); but then you removed two Eagle links, a Queen Scout link, some text on Traditional Scouting (which has gotten big in the last 10 years; all because you apparently felt they were "unimportant". I don't see how the highest ranks in two very large Scouting associations can be unimportant. There were some other links removed too. I ask that you give more thoughts to such edits in the future. I'm putting some of these edits back in. Thank you. Rlevse 22:16, 29 January 2006 (UTC)

Being the coordinator of the Scouting Portal and Project, I sometimes get stuck in the middle. I agree "see also" that are in the text can be deleted. But I also see nothing wrong with a see also that relates to the text. I think if you'd cut less out or done it one or two at a time and left notes in edit summary, it'd have caught less attention from Chris. But, I also see his point. Yes, let's keeping collaborating well. Rlevse 12:50, 30 January 2006 (UTC)

The whitewashing of B-P's sexuality[edit]

Hello, I agree with you that it is a mistake to try to eschew the main point of that section, which was not to be a discussion of the Jeal book but rather a discussion of B-P's sexuality and the part it played in his life and his focus on boys. It is unfortunate that a co-ordinated group of people with ostensible ties to an anti-homosexual organization have been able to expunge from the article on their own founder information which does not suit their political agenda. I am not sure that I see a solution here, since it is not strength of reason but power of numbers which seems to rule the day. Haiduc 23:08, 4 February 2006 (UTC)

I have to agree. LARS 14:19, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

I was too fast here. I find the current version of the section a good compromise. LARS 14:34, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

Controversies about the Boy Scouts of America[edit]

LARS: You added this statement to the subject article: "The European Region of the World Organization of the Scout Movement formally condemned BSA's policy as discriminatory." Do you have a citation for this statement?--Jagz 19:27, 12 April 2006 (UTC)

Our International commissioner to WOSM once told me so. LARS 08:59, 13 April 2006 (UTC)

Scouting article work[edit]

If you are getting this, it is because you do or did work on Scouting articles (see Wikipedia:WikiProject_Scouting#Participants_and_primary_areas_of_interest).

As the Scouting WikiProject has been formed since early January 2006, we've had many great improvements made in this area of Wiki and I want to personally thank everyone for their help. We don't always agree on things, but we keep moving forward. YIS, Rlevse 22:09, 25 April 2006 (UTC)

Federal districts of Russia[edit]

Hi, LARS! You recently added a POV dispute tag to the federal districts of Russia article. Another user made an inquiry about that, as he did not see any POV problems. Frankly, I don't see any either. Could you, please, elaborate on the article's talk page? Thanks!—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 15:42, March 2, 2009 (UTC)

No, I removed the POV warning: [1] LARS (talk) 16:44, 5 June 2017 (UTC)
